Looking for a special gift for a new mom? How about a sleepy baby softie? This sweet little doll is just the right size to snuggle up next to a live sleepy baby, and it’s fully washable when made with the specific materials listed. What’s more, you can customize it with face, eye, and lip colors to suit your very own baby or for a special gift.
This adorable baby softie measures approximately 15” from the tip of the head to the tip of the toe, and approximately 11” inches from the end of one arm to the end of the other arm.
The Critter Baby doll includes 4 versions: the sleepy bunny, the cub, the puppy, and the kitty. The face is stitched to the front head with a decorative stitch on your sewing machine. The mock zipper front uses the same decorative stitch down the center front seam.
The faces can be stitched out with machine embroidery, using the included Frog Pond Toys Critter Babies Doll Faces Set, or hand embroidery, or can be painted or ironed on. All designs can be customized for skin tone, onesie color, decorative thread color, and embellishments to make it uniquely yours.
Make one or several dolls with a variety of skin tones and eye colors. You are only limited by your imagination and the colors of felt and fleece you choose. And, since polyester craft felt and fleece are relatively inexpensive, you can afford to make multiple dolls as gifts for all the little ones in your life.
